Anyway, last Friday I asked you to ask me questions, which I would then answer. So here they are!
YeamieWaffles - After that disaster where I asked you if you had anything secret to share about your past and you replied yes I'm going to be smart about how I word things this time, haha: What's life like in Canada (I think you live there!), and do you pity the rest of the world who will never get to regularly eat at Boston Pizza? How do you imagine life will be in maybe ten years time for yourself and for society in general? Do you have any idea where the heck Hasidic Plumber is these days? I loved that guy!
Bersercules - Canada is a great place (yes I live there, on the west coast) people are mellow and kind here. I don't eat Boston Pizza I eat Panago Pizza, its my favourite! and I pity the rest of the world who will never get to regularly eat Panago Pizza! (I spent my first adsense check on Panago Pizza!)
In ten years I think I will be in the same place as I am now and have been for years (being an adult in a long term relationship my life rarely changes... except when my girlfriend dyes her hair). I think the world will be the same as it is now but moving slowly to a better place (as it often does).
The last time I talked with the Hasidic Plumber he was in Buenos Aires and taking a break from blogging and his hectic plumbing job.
Pat Hatt - If a cat, a monkey and a duck all played scrabble who would win?
Bersercules - The one with the best word skills!
R - What kind of sport do you do?
Bersercules - None.
Lil Dreamer - Why do they call the airport a terminal if flying is supposed to be safe? Do fish ever get thirsty?
Bersercules - Flying is safe, it's the airport that can be terminal. Fish do get thirsty but they're swimming in it.
Cranky and Difficult - What is the average velocity of an unladen European Swallow?
Bersercules - The average velocity of an unladen European Swallow is 11 meters per second or 24 miles an hour.
D4 - Alright. What's your favourite television show of all time? How about old timey movie?... Do you like fish sticks?
Bersercules - Favourite dramatic TV show: OZ. Favourite comedy TV show: Red Dwarf. Favourite old movie: Seven Samurais. (favourite movie I reviewed as the ol' timey movie reviewer: Brainiac.) No, I'm not a gay fish.
My 2 Pesos - What would you do if you could live forever?
Bersercules - I would try and make the world a better place. And I'd travel around the world decapitating other immortals and absorbing their powers.
Sub-Radar-Mike - Would you ever dye your beard a crazy color? Which crayon color tastes the best? What's the best song that you've ever heard?
Bersercules - I dyed my hair once, I think I'd die my beard too if I had the chance (I'd dye it what ever colour seemed the silliest!). I've never eaten a crayon before but my favourite marker flavour is purple! My favourite song is the live version of the song Alone by the Blues Traveler (from there album Live from the Fall)
...no version of that song on the internet to add a link to...
Natural One - How did you come up with your nic-name?
Bersercules - I've liked the word berserk for many years (its used in my favourite song) and I like the name Hercules so I put them together! I thought it was a funny name and when I decided to start blogging I figured I'd use that for myself.
Mark - Do you have a name for your beard? Or are you not that attached to him? Was that pun intended? Is your current girlfriend the same one from the old timey videos and if so how long have you been together? Have you ever danced with the devil in the pale moonlight?
Bersercules - No. It comes and goes. Each time it regrows its a new one with different hair. No. Yes, she is the same girlfriend from the ol' timey videos and we've been together since April 6th 2004. I am the devil in the pale moonlight.
Libby - If you had to be stuck as a contestant on a game show for the rest of your life, which one would you choose?
Bersercules - I'm not totally sure, either a crazy Japanese game show or a dirty porno show.
The Angry Lurker - Your zombie weapon of choice.....?
Bersercules - A hammer. Its light easy to swing around and is heavy enough to do damage to a head. I have one in my office and one next to my bed just in case a robber breaks into my place, so therefor its also ready in case of a zombie emergency!
MRanthrope - if you could pull a Last Action Hero and magically appear inside any movie... which film would you pick?
Bersercules - I forget what it was called but it was a porno with lots of girls doing lots of things...
Skag - Why is the sky blue?
Bersercules - Because the wavelength and the frequency of the sky match the colour blue.
Anne - You are knowledgeable in a lot of subjects (I know this because I've seen you comment on other pages), so I want to know how you spent your time as a kid. Did you read alot? Were you a kid with questions that couldn't wait to get answers? And what topics outside of movies, comics and telly shows interest you the most?
Long response coming in...
Bersercules - As a kid I didn't watch lots of TV. I spent most of my childhood drawing and writing and sitting around thinking. I didn't have any friends so I had a lot of time to think. As I learnt things I assessed and processed them and thought them through to there logical conclusion. Things that didn't make sense I ignored and things that did I incorporated into my mind. As I did this my foundation of knowledge was built. Once your mind does this it becomes easier and easier to see through false information and cut to the truth of the matter. Most people I know believe things cause they were told to, I only believe things if I know they are true. And after high school as I went into the work force and did lame menial jobs I kept my mind going by always drawing and writing in my spare time and by reading and watching documentaries. Since I never had the money to go to university even if I had wanted to I didn't take classes in school that I would need to go to university. So instead of taking lots of extra science classes and math classes and history classes I took the required ones of those subjects and filled out the rest of my years with extra classes like: art, cooking, law, psychology (which have helped me a lot in my life).
I rarely read as a kid, I see words as colours and shapes so reading was difficult. In the last ten years I've practised more with reading and gotten better with it. My spelling also sucks.
I rarely looked to others for answers as a kid, opting instead to think for myself, I surpassed my parents intelligence level when I was young.
I love learning about psychology and science and how things work and how society could be improved and better run (specifically with a resourced based economy as proposed by Jacque Fresco of the Venus project).
Jacque Fresco of the Venus Project
I also like learning about history (specifically ancient Roman times) and I like to play strategy video games like Civilization 3 and Ceaser 3 (mostly about ancient Roman times).

If you are able to pick the correctly you earn his respect and he takes you in as a pupil. If you pick the wrong one, he one-inch punches you through the wall.
